    First post has been updated with shock and brake line info!

    With stock springs you'll want a 16/27" shock and 19"+ brake lines. We do have a source for both shocks and brake lines, call or PM for details.

    Would the shock relocation really effect the shackle flip?

    Yes, factory stock location, youll have a shock that bottoms out before the bumps do which is bad for your shock

    not exactly but with my expo springs at full droop im almost at full extension with my 10in icon shocks but 12in shocks are alittle to long without the relocating the shock up further allow to run a longer shock with greater up/down travel....so i have a decent setup now but will revamp shocks,shackles and mounts all at once for a big improvement at one time done right and ato is top quality parts :)
